There's an App for that...?

Now that I’ve come out of the “I’m pregnant” closet, I may as well share a recent story from a visit to my new doctor (I promise to leave out details).
I had decided to switch to a new doctor. Partially because we moved, and I wanted to have a doctor closer to home. Partially because my last doctor was a rusher (I hate being rushed). Oh yea…and also partially because I hold grudges and the student that jammed a screw driver into my spine multiple times trying to “learn” (also known as giving his first epidural) sort of ruined my experience at that hospital...well, that and the fact that when the epidural later fell out – the hospital staff left me without pain meds for over six hours (after a c-section). So, I don’t ever want to step foot in there again. Ever. Call me sensitive.

Anywho, I decided to try a new doctor. Now, admittedly…I can be somewhat picky about doctors. Specifically, doctors that you have to visit so often…and ones that handle the whole birthing process. So, I did some research, asked around, etc etc … and found a new doctor that I had a really good feeling about.

And before I go into the issue I had with this doctor, I would like to throw out there…he seems to be a very pleasant person and a good doctor. BUT, my issue is this…he had an OB/GYN iphone app. The reason I know this is because he was on his iphone through my entire appointment.

And after a little research (thanks Trad), I learned…there’s really “an app for that.” Which begs to ask the question, “Really Apple…have you gone too far?”
